My husband and I stayed at the Pinckney September 23-26, 2012. The Inn is in a marvelous location, just right for long walks through charming Old Charleston. It also is just a block or two from the City Market, Hanks Seafood (a definite must go), and many other restaurants and shopping opportunities. We also were able to walk all the way down Church Street to Battery Park and the Harbor.
Ed, the night desk attendant was helpful and friendly, making reservations for us at the previously touted Hanks Seafood. What a recommendation-yumm! Also, he makes a mean cookie, and serves them up with lemonade, ice water, coffee and tea all day and night in the cushy, comfy lobby.
The breakfast on the terrace was delightful! It was a real bonus, definitely not your typical free breakfast! A delicious egg casserole was certainly the highlight, but the view from the rooftop was probably my favorite element.
Our room was small but adequate, though not as clean as I would have liked, with hair on the bathroom floor and "stuff" on the trim around the bathroom door. This was a definite miss, and one of the reasons I give a 4, rather than a 5. The other reason? Having traveled to South Carolina for surgery, we were looking for and SPECIFICALLY ASKED for a quiet room. What we got was room 302, which overlooked the street, and wherein we heard every vehicle passing down the street, all night long. Not to mention, the walls were so thin, I was a reluctant aural voyeur to a very happy woman who moaned and groaned in ecstasy for 30 mins. around 3 am both nights-really! The bedding was lush, but the mattress was designed for those who like it FIRM! Nevertheless, the stay was memorable and I would stay again, although I would INSIST on a quieter room, and move if I ended up in another noisy offering.
